I was under ten years old at the time. My family was visiting California and popped over the border for this show. I have two memories: they played "House on Pooh Corner" and the $15 burger incident. The casino made each patron order a dinner and the cheapest item on the menu was the said $15 hamburger. My father complained high and low (who would have thought that Sahara Casino wouldn't have a kid's menu in '76)- but in the end the burger was ordered. I don't remember eating it.
